The 39th IEEE International Conference on Data Engineering (ICDE 2023) will take place in (the happiest place on earth) Anaheim, California, USA (April 3 – 7, 2023).

IEEE ICDE 2023 Call for Demonstration Proposals

The Demonstrations Track of ICDE 2023 invites exciting and highly interactive demonstrations on data engineering research. We solicit demo proposals in all areas of data and knowledge engineering, including but not limited to, database systems, data management and processing techniques, and data-intensive applications. We also encourage submissions from related areas such as DB + X, where X is ML/AI, health, education, visualization, systems, privacy, etc. All demonstration submissions must:

  • Provide the motivation behind the demonstrated concept(s).
  • Describe the system and the technology.
  • Explain what features and scenarios will be demonstrated, and
  • State the novelty and significance of the contribution.

Highlights for Demonstration Track

  • Demonstrations will be presented at the ICDE 2023 conference and the accompanying manuscripts will be published in the ICDE 2023 proceedings.
  • We encourage submissions to include a demonstration video and to creatively use the virtual platform for participants that cannot attend in person.
  • Accompanying paper format is 4 pages, including references.

Video Submission

We encourage the submission of a demonstration video (of up to 5 minutes, 50MB max. file size) together with your demonstration proposal. The purpose of the video is to convey an impression of what will be demonstrated and need not show the final version. Both the demonstration proposal and the video will then be accessible by the reviewers. Your video could summarize your demonstration and also audio-visually highlight its most important aspects, such as the user interface, options for user interactions, the system setup, etc. The video should be submitted in MPEG/AVI/MP4 format and be playable by the common media players. Please note that you will need to first finish your demo proposal submission and then edit it to add the video as a supplementary file.

Important Dates

Demo submission due: October 24, 2022 (Monday)

Notification of acceptance: December 10, 2022 (Saturday)

Camera-ready copy due: February 10, 2023 (Friday)

Criteria for Selecting Demos

Demonstration proposals will be selected based on several criteria, including (i) relevance, (ii) novelty, (iii) depth, and (iv) the “wow” factor of the proposed demonstration. The proposal must clearly describe the functionality that will be demonstrated, and how the audience will be able to interact with the system.

Demo Submission Information

Manuscripts must be prepared in accordance with the IEEE format. The length of demo papers is 4 pages, including references. Only electronic submissions in PDF format will be considered. Please upload your submission to the ICDE 2023 Demos Track through the CMT submission site prior to the deadline.

Demo Chairs

Yeye He, Microsoft Research, USA
Holger Pirk, Imperial College London, UK
Yanyan Shen, Shanghai Jiao Tong University, China


For on-site demos, we will provide boards, power strips, markers, erasers, push-pin magnets, and wifi. For the virtual demo session, we will provide a Zoom session.
